The Supreme Court has said that admission to the under-graduate and post-graduate medical courses would be subject to the final outcome of the petitions challenging the Medical Council of India's decision requiring that candidates clear the National Eligibility Entrance Test.
This means that the private medical colleges, which were enrolling students on the basis of their own entrance tests can only admit those students who had appeared in the NEET and secured at least 50% marks.
However, since the apex Court interim order of May 13 allowed the declaration of results of MCI's NEET and also of tests by private medical colleges to facilitate the admissions for the current academic year, there is now more confusion sprouting.
While the private medical colleges have started with their admission process not considering the NEET score, the new order to follow NEET score has left students puzzled.
Students now feel that there could be a situation that a student, who had appeared in the NEET but did not secure 50%, gets admitted to a private medical college.
